Sorry for the late response. We ended up going with our initial plans and went to Clear Creek. Got in around 11:30am on Friday and unhooked... all set up and then the rains came pouring down. It rained for the better part of the day... kids were antsy to get out and do something, so it was a little rough to start. Many were not as fortunate as i was and had to set up in the rain... felt bad for them. Saturday, Sunday and most of Monday were nice. Tuesday night we got hit with one of the worst storms i've seen... and we had a perfect view from our camper... tornado watch was issued (unknown to us because there's no cell phone service at all). Lost power for about 12-hours. Wednesday was "rinse and repeat"... ok weather through the day... and then around 9:00 another round of severe storms came rolling through. Lost power again until early morning. Rained most of the day Thursday but then turned nice in the afternoon. Had perfect weather through today.
All in all, had a good time. Kinda funny, however... when the wife was with us on the two weekends, the weather was great... when she left through the week, it rained. Hmmm... lol.
Kids got to see the grandparents quite a bit, did some horseback riding and we hit the drive-in for a double feature.
We found out that Clear Creek will be allowing dogs at the campground next year... so that will eliminate this park from our "must do" list... but i still would recommend it to anyone.
Next up in two weeks... Idlewild Park in Ligoneer, PA
